The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung financially supports the awarding of the Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass as well as the associated exhibition. In addition, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung finances two special prizes – the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung Prize and the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung Prize for Senior Artists.

The participants for the Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass 2022 have recently been selected. Around 400 artists from all over the world send their application to take part in The Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass 2022. In total, the seven-member jury examined over 700 objects for the accompanying exhibition and, in a multi-stage process, selected around 100 works by 89 artists. These will be exhibited from 10 April to 25 September 2022 at the Veste Coburg and in the European Museum for Modern Glass in Rödental. The winners will be announced on 9 April, 2022.

The accompanying exhibition will highlight current trends and developments in contemporary art made of glass. The range of techniques used and artistic design is wide, as is the variety of artistic statements. Many of the submitted works deal with highly topical themes. They deal with social tensions and our fragile livelihoods. The Coburg Glass Prize for Contemporary Glass 2022 will have a special accent in the International Year of Glass, which is accompanied by festivals, workshops and activities organized worldwide.
